Hygienically designed on-machine fieldbus system

11 February 2019

The Cube67 from Murrelektronik is a decentralised fieldbus system created for use on machines. It has a modular structure allowing customised installation concepts to be realised via a variety of input modules, output modules, mixed modules, and a wide range of function modules, multifunctional channels and comprehensive diagnostic options.

The new Cube67 Hygienic Design (HD) version meets the requirements of protection class IP20 through IP69K which allows it to be offer an on-machine fieldbus solution in food production areas.

The Cube67 HD includes design features which can eliminate the need for stainless-steel terminal boxes used in the food sector. 

Parallel wiring over stainless steel mesh in food and beverage applications is extremely elaborate and traditionally it has required the use of specialised connectors. The Cube67 HD system directly connects the processes with a one-cable-technology system which sees both communication and power carried over a single cable. This saves space and reduces installation efforts. It also allows valve manifolds and intelligent sensors to be implemented in a cost-efficient way via the IO-Link master module.
